    I really like making the intra from the separate ingredients. A lot of the premade intras use less protein and less carbs. The old intra md was something like 14 gems of protein. With the peptopro I get 24. For a little while I was putting the synthesize in the intra but it felt too heavy and I felt the pump was better when I switched to adding it to the pre. I definitely think my strength, endurance and recovery are greatly improved with my strategy. I also feel it has helped my recomp a lot. I do still have some complicated pharmacology going on but I don't feel that is the root of the progress. I was really hoping to have some photos taken Friday to post for everyone but the trainer at the gym I was at was off so I didn't have anyone to do it. I'm really hoping to get some soon.

    I was supposed to have a buddy cone over who is doing classic physique in October to teach him posing but he flaked. This guy used to be a real close friend, training partner and co worker. Once he ended his last long term relationship he fell into the single guy lifestyle and stopped training with me in the am In Favor of going to clubs and picked up vaping and smoking. He is also 20yrs younger than me so I did have the conversation with him about 18 months ago that I get it and if I was in my 20s I would want to be partying too. I told him at my point in life the am workouts are my only option but when he is ready for a change I'll be there. We have tried making plans to train on a weekend so that it won't be as early but I still try to go before the family is up for the day. I may finish setting up the mirrors in the basement and try practicing some poses myself. I did find some great music that I might use if I decide to compete in October too. We are on vacation from aug 26th-sept 2 so I would have seven weeks to diet. Being that I'm sitting at a good place right now at the low 200s I definitely don't think seven weeks would be cutting it short. I have so many tweaks I can make with my diet and I still barely do any substantial cardio.

    I did my one and only show back in 2005 and vowed to compete again when I got big enough. As we all know that never happens but I have had the itch to compete again. The flyer is for the show I'm going to do. The date is the same day my father passed away in 2012 so I feel it is my date with destiny. I will be doing the masters over 40 and possibly the open as well. I started a few weeks back at 215lbs and with barely a diet and some cardio I'm sitting at 205 today. I'm thinking I'll end up around 190 which I believe puts me at the bottom of the light heavies. Part of me feels the best thing to do in that case is suck down to 189 and be the top of the middleweights. However if I can grab a little more lean weight while staying lean maybe I can stay just under 200 and sit a little closer to the middle of the light heavies. Wish me luck and I'm going to try and post as much as possible for everyone to follow.

    Shoot brother 7 weeks of diet is plenty as good as shape as you are already in. My only question. Is the wheels don't believe I've ever seen your legs top half top notch.

    Brother be the freak of the middle weights and you will still have a real chance at overall. I'm very excited you have made this decision.

    I will get some photos. Quads are pretty good, hamstrings still lack a little. From the front with my feet turned out the sweep is good. From dead on I hate them but the details are there. From the side wwe still need some work. I haven't had any photos taken from the back so I don't know exactly where I'm at from that angle. Calves have width but not depth length. I know I can't change the length but I'm gonna keep working on overall size.
